Well worth the stay!!

  • 5 of 5

My group of 15 and I could not have found a better place to stay in Nashville! This house is beautiful inside and out. I can honestly say I cannot come up with one negative thing to say! Laurie the owner is such a sweetheart and very accommodating. Couldn't have chosen a better place to stay to celebrate my 30th birthday and proposal to my Fiancé! We will most definitely be staying here on our next trip! Thanks again Laurie!

Beautiful Home!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at the Blue Door for a week with a large group as we did volunteer work in the city. It was the perfect size for a big group, and full equipped. My team and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay. I would recommend this house to anyone coming to visit Nashville.

Perfect the minute you Enter the Blue Front Doors!

  • 5 of 5

This house was absolutely perfect for our group of 12 people. We came here last weekend to celebrate my son's 30th and daughter's 25th birthdays and stayed 4 nights. The layout is great for large groups with 3 king bedrooms upstairs and 2 bedrooms downstairs and 3 full bathrooms. Two FULL kitchens and our favorite part was the huge wood farm table in the main kitchen. We all fit around the table to eat, play games or just enjoy each other's company. Laurie was very quick with responding to anything we had questions about and even left us a bottle of wine upon our arrival!

The beds are very comfortable and every little detail in this house has been covered! Plenty of coffee cups, plates and glasses! Loved the different wine glasses too!! The upstairs TV is a smart TV, so when we realized that we forgot our Blu-tooth speaker, we could actually play music off our phone through the TV.

We went out every day and night and everyplace we went was within 10 - 30 minutes of the house. The Kroger grocery store was only a 6 minute drive, which was pretty convenient. We loved visiting the Vanderbilt downtown shops and restaurants. A great pizza/italian place is in the 12 South neighborhood called Mafiaoza's. Breakfast was pretty good at Pancake Pantry, but they don't take reservations and the lines are long!

We can't wait to come back to Nashville and stay at The Blue Door again!

Perfect Stay

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough good things about this house! The decor is beautiful and the layout is absolutely perfect. We had a very large group, but because there is three living room areas, two kitchens, and tons of patio space we were never on top of each other. Everyone had plenty of space and sleeping room and it never felt crowded. The property owner is great to work with and very accommodating. She did everything to make sure our stay was amazing. It's a little far from Downtown Nashville so uber rides can get pretty expensive, but luckily we had a few SUV's and designated drivers so that barely affected us. We'll definitely rent this house again the next time we're in Nashville. Thank you Laurie!

Surprise 70th Birthday gathering at the Blue Door

  • 5 of 5

What a fantastic and awesome house!!! The house was so comfortable and was exactly as the pictures showed. There was so much room and the house worked so well - the kids had bottom floor and adults had top floor. And even thought there were 7 adults and 7 kids, we could all eat at the same table in the kitchen, which was great experience and so many fun conversations and game playing.

We got together as a family from all areas for a surprise 70th birthday party. We created so many wonderful moments and memories. We did alot while in Nashville but the kids were always happy to get back to the house for their time together.

And as an added feature to this house is the ease of working with Laurie, the owner. She was so helpful before and during the booking. I reviewed many houses when trying to make decision on rental. I referred to the reviews from past renters to help make my decision. I had several questions on location, etc and Laurie was always so prompt and kind to answer everything. She was a gem to work with. Thank you so much Laurie for all your help in making this time special. Laurie's instructions on house features was right on and she created a book on places to go, places to eat, places to shop, security setup, internet setup, etc. She is the best!!! We had an awesome time and can't wait for another trip to Nashville and the Blue Door.

I hope this review helps guide someone else to the fantastic 'Blue Door'.

Functional, beautiful, warm home!

  • 5 of 5

My family met in Nashville from four different states and rented The Blue Door. It couldn't have been a more perfect home for our Thanksgiving/family reunion. The house was laid out perfectly with sitting/play areas for little ones, football for college-aged boys, and a section for good ole board games! The house was spacious, clean, located in a beautiful area and close to downtown. Laurie, the owner, was great to communicate with and offered excellent suggestions on where to go and her restaurant choices were spot on! Sam's Place for burgers and The Southern Steak and Oyster downtown were awesome recommendations. The Escape Game was a fun family activity for those who like team building and puzzles.

We had so much fun and created wonderful memories! I would highly recommend The Blue Door to anyone needing the space for a larger group. I only hesitate to recommend for selfish reasons....I'm afraid the word will get out and it won't be available next time I want to rent it.

Thanks for your excellent customer service Laurie, you helped make our stay wonderful!
